The Mysteries of Chris Van Allsburg

Throughout his career as both sculptor and picture book artist, Chris Van Allsburg has combined a keen appreciation for the mysteries of life with an arresting sense of its beauty. In Van Allsburg's universe, boats sail through clouds; a jungle stone transforms men into moneys; and entire dramas are captured in a single striking image. The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is delighted to present the work of this acknowledged master in a mid-career retrospective that includes his equally intriguing and exquistely refined sculpture.
